The Office

My new place of employment lies in Springfield Township and every morning, afternoon, and early evening I pass the intersection of King and Hill where I hear gunshots.

At first I thought I was making it up in my head, "Those can't really be gunshots? I bet it's someone slamming 2x4s down on the cement all day. Yeah, that makes more sense." Then my mind wandered and I kept thinking there was some crazy street fight going on in Springfield between two gangs or it was a political rally that just got intensely out of hand.

Finally, I found it out. It is just a trap and skeet shooting range aka the Adams Conservation Club as told to me by a coworker today. Amidst this conversation, our wonky secretary yells out from across the office, "I LOVE skeet shooting! Woo-hoo!" and proceeds to pantomime shooting a rifle.

Summerime softball at Club 16 is played right next to the range. It was not unusual to get peppered with low velocity returning to earth buckshot. I've heard of home field advantage, but..............
